Hello All. I’ve been meaning to review this amazing lip stain from Burberry. This is kind of a sequel to the fabulous Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet I reviewed a couple of years ago. You can still find it here. That lipstick is one of my holy grails even though it isn’t the most long-wearing lipstick I’ve tried. What I really like about that lipstick is its effect and finish on the lips. It really gives that beautiful, non-drying, soft-matte look that I like a lot. I never ever mind reapplying it because it’s so worth it. I still repurchase some of its shades and still use them nowadays.
Just like the Liquid Lip Velvet, this Burberry Lip Velvet Crush is not that different. Just twist the top part, enough to release the creamy product on the velvety applicator, and you can either dab it on the lips for a sheer lip-staining effect or you can glide it all the way for more color payoff. It feels very lightweight and it sets on the lips within a few minutes. It will then look like a beautiful lip stain with a soft-matte look. It doesn’t overemphasize the lines on the lips, nor does it feel drying. There is no discernible scent and it’s pretty long-wearing.
25 Cinnamon – works well for light-medium skintone. Looks like a spice rose shade.
85 Rosy Mauve – very rosy mauve, may appear quite pinkish at times, especially on different lighting
You can also apply this Lip Velvet Crush on the cheeks and it works really well. Overall, just like the Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet, this is a well-done lip stain. I really love it and I highly recommend it.
Have you tried this lipstick already? Are you a fan of Burberry lip products?
Hiya, I don’t own a lot of Burberry beauty products but my experience with the few that I own have been really great. The thing I seem to love about Burberry beauty products are their robust packaging wearable formulations that embody that whole effortless and casual chic vibe. So Brit-ish. They also seem to put some innovation in their products and add attention to details.
Anyway, here’s two Burberry products that I love and I’m definitely looking forward to adding some more of these soon.
Burberry Effortless Eyebrow Definer in 02 Sepia ($33): I’ve been using this right from the beginning that it was released. The first of its kind, way before Anastasia’s Brow Definer came out or Benefit’s Goof Proof Brow Pencil was introduced. The texture is waxy on this brow product and I like that it’s not super pigmented upon first stroke so that there’s room for blending and for easy correction if ever you made a mistake. Also, this has a very natural effect on the brows and the Sepia shade is very versatile. It’s like a light grayish brown that could work on any light to medium skin tone. I love the thick and robust metallic double-ended packaging as well as the durable and useful spooley. It’s also long lasting and it fills the brows really well. The only caveat is the price, but there’s enough product in the tube to last a long time.
Burberry Eye Colour Contour 104 Almond ($29.50): It’s hard to find a matte cream eye shadow in a sea of pen-style eye colors. Fortunately, I found this gorgeous midtone shade of matte brown from Burberry and I really love it. It goes on smoothly like a butter and it’s waterproof plus it won’t budge. I love the versatility of this shade and it’s ideal for layering with other colors, specially for a daytime look. I love how it contours my lids and creates a naturally soft smoky eye makeup. This is definitely a great eye color pen to have and in the same caliber as the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick or the Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Stick Eyeshadow.
These two products from Burberry are really worth trying given that they help enhance your eye makeup game like a breeze. I do have my eye on the Effortless Eyebrow Definer in 04 Malt Brown and the Eye Colour Contour in 108 Midnight Brown and 112 Rosewood.
